White bump in top eyelid

Hello, I have this white bump undernieth my eyelid not anywhere near the lash line, more to the side of my left eye under the lid. It is right next to my eyeball way in the back. It is not a stye, I have had those before and it is nothing like that. It is very sore and slightly swollen, but not visable unless you flip the lid and look under. I have researched some things and it doesn't seem to be anything that i have been looking up...i'd list them, but i honestly can't recall all of the condition's names. I do not have a doctor where i live yet, and was wondering if anyone was experiencing or has seen this type of things before.

thank you so much,

Dear Britt36,

It difficult to assess what you are describing.  I recommend that you seek the care of an eyeMD. If you are new to the area, excellent doctors can be found bysearching the AAO.org web site.
